UFC Light Heavyweight Championship – Jerry Prochazka (c) vs. Glover Taxira: Apologies to John Blachucci, who is expected to face Prochazka as a result of UFC 275. Father’s Time is ticking off this match again, though the ageless surprise Teixeira is different.

Juliana Pina vs Nunes 2 is ready for UFC 277 on July 30. If Nunes wins, Pena will have a hard time making his case for an immediate rematch. If the drink wins, Nunes is out of the picture. However, the door is open for Shevchenko. Women’s Flyweight Champion He expressed his desire to fight for the Bantamweight Belt. By the end of the year. It should also leave room for the UFC to develop challengers in both divisions, such as Caitlin Vera (women’s bantamweight), Grasso and Manon Ferrott (women’s flyweight).

Carla Esparza (c) vs UFC Women’s Strawberry Championship Zhang Valley: This is nonsense. Zhang has just won the biggest knockout of his career, ending a memorable feud with Jedderezzek and sending his fellow former champion to retire. UFC President Dana White has already announced that Zhang will be the winner. Jededrzejczyk is next in line and this is very significant. Fellow contender Marina Rodriguez has struggled to return to the title scene with four wins since losing to Sparza in 2020. Unfortunately, for every dollar of UFC’s promotional machine sold to Sparza’s fight, he and Rose Namajonas after delivery. The worst UFC title fight in history. Zhang can fix this to some extent.
